Formal Christmas Attire
December 10, 2007 8:57 PM   Subscribe

So I am looking for ideas as to what to wear to this year's company Christmas party. The theme is Naughty is Nice. I am not looking for anything too naughty, but more along the lines of something formal but outlandish. Any place that I could rent something for one night in the San Francisco area would be perfect. I have a couple of ideas, suit with a tophat/cane, maybe a leisure suit, anything that would turn heads. Oh yes, I am a guy and I am not too into the assless leather chaps/gag ball/leather thong.

If you want to look nice but still follow the theme, maybe try going traditional-dressed-up with a touch of fun? Like a tuxedo, but replace the jacket with a blach leather one? Or top hat and a whip?

The devil is a gentleman. Wear a tux, pointy goatee/slim mustache, horns and a tail.

Full suit like in the older gangster movies... sharp and dark =)

ACT rents costumes out through their Costume Rentals department, and their staff will help you come up with an excellent costume to match your theme. They are often very busy, but you could call and try to schedule a fitting to check the place out. 415.439.2379

Awesome! Thanks guys! I like the early 20th century gangster idea, and I will check out ACT and see what they have.
